TWD: Chocolate Ganache Ice Cream



Katrina of Baking and Boys picked Chocolate Ganache Ice Cream on page 430.

I have only recently gotten to 'know' Katrina online through TWD. On top of having a great blog with dependable recipes, she's a sweetheart. I wish I lived near her so we could have baking parties! She is one of those bloggers I wish I knew in real life. I'm in awe of this woman - mother to 4 boys. Oh my goodness. I have only ONE boy and I'm exhausted!



Confession: Not a lot of this recipe actually made it to the ice cream maker. I had to fight off hungry straws wanting to sip it up - milkshake style. I also used milk chocolate because I'm a milk chocolate kinda gal!

mmmmm, your picture is making me crave ice cream - and it's only 9.45am!! Great recipe!

Paula said...

YUM! Where's the straw? I want a milkshake too.

This looks so creamy and tempting! Perfect for a hot summer's day (and we're still getting plenty of those).

Katrina said...

Aw, thanks so much for the admiration! Wouldn't it be fun to have a big party and meet all these wonderful TWD people. Forget BlogHer, let's just have our own conference--at a big kitchen where we could all just bake and share (no kids allowed) ;)
Thanks for churning with me this week.

Valerie said...

Seeing all the beautiful pictures of this ice cream makes me want to make it all over again!

i can see why it was hard to make into icecream! i don't think i would have been able to resist it either.

OMG !!! Can it get any better than converting ganache into an ice-cream. I bookmarked and will SURELY try it out, even if I fail... lol :)

Tia said...

Priya - even if you fail, the worst thing would be a delicious frothy milkshake... or freeze into FUDGESICLES!!! :)

Priya (Yallapantula) Mitharwal said...

Tia, is that link to "baking and boys" right?. It is taking me godaddy.com site. Please check it out.

Amber Marie said...

Ha - milkshake style! I admit I also dipped into it before it went into the ice cream maker.

Rachel said...

So hard to resist! So tasty! :)

Cristine said...

I bet it was great with milk chocolate. YUM!

Jessica of My Baking Heart said...

Beautiful photos! I was licking spoons, too... it just begged to be tried before it went into the machine! :)

Shandy said...

Great pictures of the ice cream! Milk chocolate sounds so good right now. We were taste testing before the mixture went into the ice cream bowl too =).

Katy said...

Love the first picture, and I know! It was hard to stay out of it... :)

Jules Someone said...

Yum. And more yum. Yeah, I licked a spoon or two before I churned the custard. And then a spoon or two after...

Judy said...

I definitely debated whether the unfrozen stuff would make it to the ice cream machine. Now, I have to hide it away for my next project so it doesn't disappear! I would like to try your milk chocolate version.

Lillian said...

Gorgeous pictures!

steph- whisk/spoon said...

this looks really dark, even with the milk chocolate. yum!!

Lauryn said...

i agree, this was amazing before it even became ice cream. Mmmm, so good! Yours looks awesome!

Diana's Cocina said...

This looks and sounds delicious.

TeaLady said...

also good melted over vanilla ice cream, but don't tell anyone. Looks perfect.

Pamela said...

Hmmmm...I may have to break out the straws next time I make this one. Great job!
